...peak numbers are boosted by up to 30 per cent over Corsair's incumbent solutions.
Having already entered the PCIe 4.0 storage fray with the MP600 range of drives, Corsair ups performance by releasing a trio of MP600 Pro.
Now equipped with the faster eight-channel Phison E18 controller and Micron 3D TLC Nand, peak numbers are boosted by up to 30 per cent over Corsair's incumbent performance solutions.
That wholesome uplift is not enough to unseat rival WD's SN850 from the top of the charts. Priced at similar levels, albeit without a heatsink, WD remains champion of the PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 crowd.
There's no getting around the high cost, which at £390 for the 2TB model is getting on to being twice that of slower mainstream drives. But let's be real; you don't look at this kind of SSD if mainstream positioning and value are the most important characteristics.
Though not the champion performer, we see enough merit in the Corsair MP600 Pro line for it to be in the mix when speccing up that ultimate PC upgrade, especially if on a deal.
Consistently fast performance
Class-leading write perf
Good numbers when in degraded state
Basic software support
Endurance not great
